Apr 29 9:00am

April 29, 2017
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

"Caring for myself is an act of political warfare"
– Audre Lorde.

This year’s 360 will center around self-care and resistance. Join us for a day with LBTQ women dedicated to protecting our minds, bodies and rights in challenging times. 360 offers a wide array of free workshops, from “how to stay health as you age” and “ Empowerment through BDSM” to “how to be an activist and not to lose your mind”. Don’t miss our panel on intersectional feminism with powerful LA LBTQ women activists, and a key note speech by Amita Swadhin, an LA-based educator, storyteller, activist, and consultant who testified against Attorney General Jeff Sessions in Congress last January. Our resource fair will offer a unique opportunity to connect with resources to help you stay sane, powerful and healthy.

The event is free. Parking is limited. Free valet service for 160 spots available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., first come, first served. Also available: limited amount of self-parking spots in the lot across from The Village. We encourage carpooling, shared ride services, and public transportation. Free lunch and beverages.

Keynote speaker:

Amita Swadhin will talk about what an intersectional and sustainable approach to resistance looks like for the next four years–self-care, interdependence, politicizing sexual violence, using intersectionality. They are an LA-based educator, storyteller, activist, and consultant dedicated to fighting interpersonal and institutional violence against young people. In January 2017, Amita testified on behalf of survivors of sexual violence and LGBTQ Americans in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee against Senator Jeff Sessions’ nomination as the US Attorney General. Amita leads Power, Pleasure, Purpose, an online course for survivors of child sexual abuse to engage in individual and collective healing, and is also the Founder and Director of Mirror Memoirs, a project centering the narratives and leadership of LGBTQ people of color who survived child sexual abuse. Amita's commitments and approach to this work stem from their experience as a genderqueer, femme queer woman of color, daughter of immigrants, and years of abuse by their parents, including eight years of rape by their father.
